The Cart Before the Horse
Child: I'm sorry, Pheron. I seem to be intruding on some gardening activity of some sort.
Pheron: No. That is not what I'm doing. Is there something of which you wish to discuss?
Child: I saw a very large cart in the front quarters of your property. This cart is so large in fact that it nearly covers your small parcel.
Pheron: That is my new cart.
Child: Why did you purchase it? Did your other cart become to be damaged?
Pheron: No, I felt it was not big enough.
Child: For hauling your...philosophy items?
Pheron: Thats right.
Child: It seems that it was of plenty volume to hold whatever you may have carried.
Pheron: Well, I like to feel that I may see above the other carts. So many of them are so large these days and nights.
Child: But, they wouldnt be so big if citizens did not keep purchasing big carts.
Pheron: Well, I feel more protected in a big cart.
Child: Does not the bigger cart turn over easier?
Pheron: The bigger cart is very manly.
Child: This I understand. Thank you. You are lit with truth. You are indeed a hero for buying this cart which is too big. Have you horses to pull it?
Pheron: Not as of yet. I cannot afford them.
Child: I must say, I always look forward to our discussions, dear Pheron.
Child: I said, "I always look--"
Pheron: Good bye.
